a big big portion of the problem. thank you. host: what energy end of the year energy issues are we looking at here and which ones are likely to get punted down the road? guest: that's a good question. i'm not sure what energy issues -- i'm not aware of any -- host: tax issues? guest: tax issues for the fiscal cliff. but going down the road you definitely have some issues. there's the need for a new highway bill, they've had trouble tasking the highway legislation because no one is willing to increase the gas tax. and our gas taxes are the main ways we pay for new roads and bridges and that kind of thing. so i think that's a relatively short-term problem. and then over the long term, which i've talked about here before, is that given that we're going to need some rev now help solve our future fiscal burden, one of the most sensible places to raise revenue would be through a carbon tax or something similar because that can also help us reorient our energy priorities to cleaner, less damaging greenhouse gases type of energy. host: i want to note that you can go to the c-span fiscal cl

, but in the longer term, immigration, energy, all of the big things. washington cannot get anything done if we have had this kind of an absurd fight over this 1 deal. >> 1 of the things you will notice is that the house passed a bill on a bipartisan basis and sent them to the senate. the senate did not take those bills up. the tax bill which came back to us yesterday was a great example of that. we passed that bill with bipartisan support on august 1st. it has been sitting there and we never have the courage to take it out. all of these issues that you are talking about, things that deal with education. the pass this in the house. i think there is plenty of frustration with the u.s. senate. >> the perception around the world is that america has become ungovernable. it cannot get small things done without a fight. >> well, sometimes we do have a difference of opinion and we do have these fights that if you will our discussions and having a democracy can be messy business at times. lawmaking can be messy. we have a time where we have those on both sides, the political spectrum, those in the middle an

stability. number three, we have a long-term opportunity around energy. america can become an energy exporter. how do we do that in a way that deals with some of the environmental challenges that we have at the same time? that's going to be a third thing. but the most immediate thing i've got to do, starting on january 1st, if congress doesn't act before the end of the year is make sure that taxes are not going up on middle class families. because it is going to be very hard for the economy to sustain its growth trends if suddenly we have a huge fight taken out of the average american's paycheck. >> new gun regulations. mayor bloomberg of new york told me a couple weeks ago on this program that ought to be your number one agenda item. you know how hard this is. do you have the stomach for the political fight for new gun control laws? >> you know, david, i think anybody who was up in newtown who talked to the parents, who talked to the families, understands that something fundamental in america has to change. and all of us have to do some soul serving, including me as president, that
the obama administration has done have been anti growth, whether energy licy, trade with china, reregulation of wall street. and now this, taxing all those jobs creators, all those small businesses. i don't know why you would want to invest in this country now. gerri: let me ask you this. the congressional budget office has out its numbers. if the fiscal cliff hits they say u.s. gdp would shrink by half a percentage point and that unemployment will rise to over 9%. do you think they have the rights or are they just too conservative? will it be worse? >> if we actually went over the cliff we would be subtracted from domestic demand over $600 billion. that is about four percentage points in gdp. most economists were forecasting in the first half of next year hardly 2 percent growth. if you subtract 4% to spending from that year and a recession that is much deeper. the cbo tense and not be alarmist because they say what they are partisan, but congress read it paycheck, and tey don't want to say congress is being irresponsible and thrusting the economy into the next great depression. gerri: then
need to do is spend our efforts and energy in trying to achieve a plan that will carry us forward. i still am optimistic we can do that. i'm hopeful that we will do it. if we don't do it in the next several weeks before the new year, i hope it is done immediately there after. i think it would be better for the country and economy and people's confidence in the act of this country to make decisions and govern wisely if we were able to make an agreement before the end of the year. and that is still possible despite the u turn from the speaker yesterday. i hope that the discussions continue and prove conclusive. with that i want to thank you for this opportunity and i'll be happy to answer questions people might have. >> we will take questions. the questions will be first from members of the media and national press club members and then if no hands are raised after that we will go to others. >> senator i want to tie some things together in terms of your great, informative powerful knowledge based so speech and ask a question that brings us into focus given current continue verse sis. y

throughout today and tonight. let's break it down. you see the low sliding off the coast. getting energy if the west. it becomes intense and stays to the south of new england. now with that flow, we're getting the winds coming from the north, picking up the moisture from the atlantic. that's why eastern massachusetts, if you can see the brighter white here, indicates a little bit more intense snowfall. it is still something we're monitoring because the as the low slides east or west, that would impacts how much rain versus how much snow you get in new england. whether you're in new england or not, you'll face some travel troubles today. we have airport delays forecast for the northeast, the mid-atlantic, the midwest. and even down here in the south, we had delays in charlotte this morning. and on the west coast, we could see delays, low clouds and rain even in los angeles. busy travel weekend. lots of weather coast to coast that will impact millions of people. >> no escaping it, huh? >> no. >> thanks. >>> tax hikes, spending cuts, and the u.s. economy caught right in the middle. we can o

. a lot of them are very bipartisan. there is stuff in there for energy tax credits, some for two and three-wheeled electric vehicles, but, for example, there is one on the personal level for people who live in states that do not have a state income tax, for example, they're aloud under one of these extenders to write off on their federal tax forms the state sales taxes that they pay since they're not able to write off any state income taxes. but it is mainly business tax breaks, a lot of them have been extended over the years. the nascar tax break you talked about that was put in at 2004 corporate tax bill, went for a couple of years, extended again. i went back and looked at my stories covering this, they keep coming up. there was a story from december of 2010, one from december of 2009, one from 2007. we tend to only pay attention to these special breaks that get stuffed in the bills only at this point in time, then we forget about it until congress extends them one or two years later. >> and these are not new, jamie. >> no, they're not, don. again you go back to 2004 corporate
, the energy sector is really booming. and so i think we'll get some job growth in the next several months but i think this bill means that we're going to get less jobs than we would otherwise. when you have 20 million people, already, jenna, that either don't have a job at all or don't have a full-time job, this wasn't a very smart time in my opinion to be raising these taxes on businesses and investors. it was having last night, i was up very late last night on fox as we watched that drama develop and you know the president gave his remarks. he said we need more investment in this country. of course he is right, we do need more investment in this country. why will he sign today a tax bill that raises taxes on investment? i don't get the logic to that. jenna: first good it that you were watching fox and not orange bowl, steve. you got your nose to the griped stone watching the news. >> there you go. jenna: conservatives argued for the bush-era tax cuts to stay. that is something happening in the bill for the majority of the americans. the other originalment is don't cut government spendin
